From Father Iain, All Saints Chiang Mai
Easter Sunday Worship!
We had a wonderful Easter Day celebration last Sunday. We were joined by some of the children from the Youth Charity Foundation and our sermon was in both Thai and English! The service included three baptisms and one public confession of baptismal vows and was a joyful reflection of the resurrection!
This was followed by a packed potluck at the vicarage.
The readings for the Second Sunday of Easter will be from Acts 2:14, 22-32, 1 Peter 1:3-9, and John 20:19-31, and we will be singing the hymns Alleluia! Sing to Jesus; The Day of Resurrection; Hail the Day; and All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name!

Spring Retreat: 12th – 14th May
We are organising a Spring Retreat to run from Friday 12th May – Sunday 14th May. We are planning to hire a whole resort, RungNara Pool Villa, in SanSai, just outside Chiang Mai.
It is only 30 minutes drive from church so should be easy for everyone to get there! There are only ten rooms, so please let Phyllis or Katie know if you are thinking of coming. There is a sign-up sheet at church! It will be a time of relaxation and fun!
Archbishop Ron’s Visit
We are delighted that Archbishop Ron Langham will again be visiting and preaching on Sunday 7th May. The service will be followed by a potluck lunch.
Some of the group!
Chili Night will continue next week at the usual time of 6 p.m. Come and join us at the vicarage as we share chili followed by ice cream! There will be no Chili Night on Tuesday 25th April, but it will return the following week!
